What is Phantom Power?

Phantom power is a term used in audio equipment to describe a method of powering microphones or other devices that require electricity to operate. It works by sending a small electrical current through the same wires that transmit the audio signal, which provides the power the device needs to work.

This means that a microphone or other device can be powered without the need for an additional power source, such as a battery or external power supply. This can be very convenient, as it eliminates the need for extra wires or equipment, and allows for a simpler and more streamlined setup.

It’s important to note that not all microphones or devices require phantom power, and it’s always a good idea to check the specifications of your equipment before using it with phantom power.
